Aside from the validity of the Yorkshire Ranter's dismissal of the Iran issue, I have to admit I really like that word.
Something to note: The United States isn't going to bomb Iran tomorrow, or this week, or next week. We're in the opening stages, not the closing ones. After all, you need to set the stage before the play can go on, and the early "scholarly" stuff is hardly more than the rough framing. We've got a bit of time, I presume.
The question is whether anybody will damned well DO anything about it.
